Maybe I should set up a forwarder.

spam at schestowitz.com >> spam at microsoft.com

You know, just take it back home. That's the way I've handled FrontPage
extension 404's for years, as well as DDOS attacks (been a year since the
last one).

Microsoft also said XP was ultra secure when they released it. They say the
same things about VIsta, yet it's already vulnersable.

Best wishes,
